Nostalgia At The New Bradford Go Station

An old Bradford Station signIf you look carefully at the picture (click on it to see it full size) to the left, you will see an older Bradford Station sign from CN days gone by. Originally called Ontario, Simcoe and Huron Union Railroad, it opened for travel all the way from Toronto on June 13, 1853. The Aurora Station had just opened on January 7, 1853. Look closer and you will see to distance mileage on either side of the word “Bradford”. Toronto 42 miles and North Bay 186 miles. Then see the Bradford GO sign on the light pole. Talk about the old and the new! Not sure when North Bay opened up but it must have been a while after Bradford. I think it’s great that they kept the old sign
